Does Aneone Have Zakk Wylde Guitar Boomers Strings......

Do They Make A Big Difference In Sound And Tone.....do I Need Them??
#2
sometimes they won't even fit on guitars because the E and A strings are too thick to string through the tuning pegs.
#3
Those are the ones with the crazy gauges right? I was going to buy them, but the guy at the shop recommended I don't 'cause he had some major problems switching over from normal gauge strings.
#5
I currently got the Zack Wylde 10-60 gauge and they are a very heavy set of strings.
As far as sound and tone, They really don't sound any different from any other
strings I have played with, only you get a much much heavier sound because of the
string size.

I bought a set once, and it honestly didn't sound different at all, they just felt bigger and a bit looser, even if they were in tune.
If they cost more than a regular set for you, i would'nt get them.

I bought a set when I had just got my own guitar. I was relatively new so I thought whats good for the Wylde man would be good for me. (I already used some higher gauge strings, but not as rediculously high as those.) Naturally I put them on and start to tune it up to standard and....


Snap the nut on the low E. :/
Luckily the guy at the shop got it replaced without charging me. I now use the GBMs.
My Stuffs:
-ZZ Ryder Empire (with Wilkinson trem.)
-Marshall Lead 12
-Ibanez Metal Screamer
-Zoom 505ii (was only $15, and came with an skb case)
-Crate FXT120

Those boomers are of pooor quality. As someone mentioned about, they apply way to much tention o the guitar. The neck will "warp" eventually. Seriously, stick with D'Addario. OR whatever. Those boomers are terrible. Poor quality control on their standpoint.

yeh at the guitar store the guy said they would work fine in a floyd rose bridge

to tell you the truth, theyre no different than any other ghs or any other brand strings for that point other than theyre thicker
its 10-13-17-36-52-60
the low tune ones are 11-14-18-36-52-70 i believe, for drop b and drop a tuning
they do give your neck a tiny bit more curve so a truss adjust may be required, but if you drop them a step or more you'll be fine

i use the 10-60's, they work fine. right now i have them standard down a whole step.
i wont use a low e lighter than 52, anything else is too lose
the advantage of these is that your unwound strings are good for bends and speed but your low end is chunky and you can bang on em without them flopping around and going out of tune
i could have inserted so many sexual jokes in there, its not even funny
for those of you breaking your nuts with ernie ball 10-52 slinkies thats pretty riddiculous,
i stuck a set on a mim strat and they worked fine, i just had to adjust the tension in the bridge
